Morley Folk Club is on the move
MORLEY Folk Club is on the move.
After being based at The Dashers on High Street since it first formed, it is now moving to the United Services Club, also on High Street, from next week.
There is also going to be a change of day from the usual Wednesdays – the club will now be meeting on Tuesdays, beginning from January 15.
Some of folk’s top musicians will be performing at the venue every first and third Tuesday of the month.
The first headline act at the new venue will be Wooden Hill, a duo who first came together around 2007, but have only used that name since 2010.
They consist of Halifax-born Michael Wood and Hartlepool-born Ian Hill, both of whom have a wealth of experience from singing and playing at venues around West Yorkshire for many years.
Their repertoire has been described as eclectic but containing a core of traditional material from the British Isles blended with a few interesting surprises, tastefully arranged both instrumentally and vocally.
Mike plays a variety of guitars and Ian plays guitar, mandolin, mandola and concertina, while their music has recently been enhanced by the addition of two younger members, Tess and Dave Turner, who provide extra harmonies and instrumental adornment on much of their songs and tunes. Dave plays flute, whistle and harmonica and Tess sings.
Dave is also a member of the Gerry McNeice Band, and Mike, Tess and Dave are also part of the zany Timbucfive, while Ian is also a member of the shanty group, Lime Scurvy. Mike is also an actor and dramatist whose most recent production proved popular at Otley Folk Festival.
